Katie, I too am interested, as we plan to visit Tikal after our trip to AC on August 30 - Sept 2. Do you or does anyone else have any details or information regarding this incident? Did the incident occur onthe road from Belize to Tikal or near Tikal itself? I tried to do a search on the WWW for Tikal, Guatemala, but could find no recent articles discussing this incident, only comments discussing certain areas that seem to be prone to problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
